Paul is a wonderful guide and a good driver. The tour was very nice, even if the weather was not the best in the beginning and we could not see the volcano. However it became better in the afternoon and Paul made plenty of stops to allow us to take pictures of Cotopaxi. Prepare to spend a lot of time in the car. However the views are absolutely worth it.

The activity was amazing! We got to see so much and do so much. The views were phenomenal. We got to go down into the crater at Quilotoa and went kayaking on the lake which was spectacular. The guide was super fun and informative! Highly recommend!

Great trip! Very informative and fun. We got to climb to the base camp and down, see the lagoon and eat local food. Our guide Adrian and our driver Mauricio were great.

Jimena was amazing! Very friendly and personable, lots of knowledge, and adjusted our schedule slightly for weather. She even took us to try cuy (by request)

I had a really good day with the guide Jonathan! He told us a lot about the nature and also historic facts. I definitly recommend this tour!
